The Chicago White Sox are a very good baseball team. They currently hold a record of 91-68. That is good enough (with three games remaining) to be the American League Central Division champions. It is going to be the Houston Astros in the first round of the postseason. Whether the series starts in Chicago or Houston is still to be determined by the final weekend of the year.
The greatest player in the history of the Chicago White Sox is Frank Thomas. He recently appeared on Fansided‘s “The Baseball Insiders” podcast. Marc Carmen and Robert Murray had a conversation with him and he revealed his opinion on the White Sox postseason chances.
Frank Thomas believes that the White Sox are going to be in the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. That is bold coming from him but he has been saying it all year long on the postgame shows and other outlets as well.
He believes, according to this interview, that the White Sox have an elite bullpen and rotation. He said he gives a slight bullpen edge to the White Sox while acknowledging that the Los Angeles Dodgers may have the starting pitcher edge. It is good to know that the greatest player in the history of the White Sox believes in the modern-day team.
Frank Thomas believes that the Chicago White Sox will win the American League.
The White Sox are going to start the postseason against the Houston Astros. We are still waiting to find out where that series will start but we know the opponent. The last time the White Sox won a playoff series was in 2005 when they defeated the Houston Astros in the World Series. It would be really cool to see the next one be against them as well.
Having Frank Thomas around to give analysis on the White Sox has been very good from a fan point of view. His opinion carries a lot of weight around here so it is good to hear from him as often as we do. His comments during this podcast interview should really excite fans. It is hard to win the World Series but it can definitely happen.
If Frank Thomas believes that it is possible, why shouldn’t we? This is a man that played Major League Baseball and was very good at it. He clearly is someone that can recognize things as they happen during the game. Hopefully, this is something that he is right on. Seeing the White Sox win the World Series would be so great for the city of Chicago.
